A dispersal order has been introduced on a large area of Redcar this weekend after a number of incidents of anti-social behaviour.
The order allows officers and PCSOs to direct individuals or groups to leave an area if they are being disruptive.
If they fail to leave the area or return within the period when the dispersal order is in place, they can then be arrested.
It comes after a spate of incidents involving anti-social behaviour and fire setting in the Kirkleatham area.
The dispersal order will see officers step up patrols at the Kirkleatham Lane junction with Roseberry Road; south to A174; east on the A174 to the path that leads North from A174 across Plantation Road through to Cartmel Close; joining the East end of Roseberry Road; then west along Roseberry Road through to Kirkleatham Lane.
A dangerous driver who clocked speeds of 70mph as he tore away from police in a residential area has been jailed.
24-year-old Macauley Owen drove on the wrong side of the road during the chase through Middlesbrough and Hemlington.
He was caught with cocaine after his Audi A3 went into a skid, hitting a curb, bringing the pursuit to an end in the early hours of February 1st.
The Hemlington man admitted a string of offences including dangerous driving, possession of a class A drug, driving with no insurance and failing to provide a specimen of breath.
He appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court earlier this week where he was jailed for 30 months.
